Frustration Quelled

Yes, my frustration has been quelled a bit.

I passed the Italian Tubular Cast On for the Enpaper Mitts and started the colorwork last night. It’s been a very long time since I’ve done intarsia. (And though I’ve been knitting for years, I still haven’t done any Fair Isle.) The last intarsia work I did was a blue and green striped sweater with a tiger in the middle for Jem. He wore it twice.

But the Mitts aren’t too bad. It’s a lot of work, luckily it’s a small project. (And it’s in Koigu! Gotta love it!)

I should say that I’m happy with the colors too. I mean, they aren’t what I wanted but that’s what happens when you get the “colors vary from computer to computer”, you know?

Saturday, after dinner, I received a nice little package of handdyed yarn from Etsy:

I absolutely love it! It’s called “Pigs In Mud” by Sunnyside Ellen. This is why I ♥ Etsy. I also received some owl magnets, but I’ll save those for another post.

I’m … this close to having my Wee Kitty done and I can’t wait to share with you. I think she’s a hoot! Now if I could just focus on the Cobblestone Sweater for Shawn.

  1. But all that work you’re doing with the endpapers is fair-isle work! So you can rightly say that you have done it. There is no intarsia in it. Congrats on the figuring out the cast-on! It looks lovely so far!
